I do not know whether my own Vista has any problem, I am posting the screens of Ubuntu here with CCSM in full fledge, Amarok, Open office word processor, Transmission, FX3,Update Manager, MPlayer Movie player, system monitor and both core together showing 50 %.
But in my Vista SP1 I have Aero, sidebar, KIS7,Spybot,Threat Fire, Comodo, O&O defrag, 360 desktop, Real Player and Adobe PS CS3 and quick time. It is over. The CPU touches 100 and stay there for long. Opening more apps a heck. RAM is just 47-54 % only. Noe that none of the anti kits are scanning the PC, only in active monitoring same for O&O. I will post the screen later.
As earlier said I love both the OS, but I shifted to Ubuntu for its speed and flexibility. I even felt the browsing is also little bit faster in Ubuntu (FX3) than IE7
Any trouble shooting offer for my Vista ? I am proud to use this OS and may be the first person to shift to W7 when it release, but for sure Vista is killing my CPU. The side bar has 4-6 widgets which takes 1-3 % of CPU.
The main culprit is system Idle which eats up 55 % or more of CPU
